Cooktown, the heart of Cape York

Welcome from Mayor Peter Scott

May 24, 2017

Welcome to the South East Cape York Trade Fair, your one stop event for everything job-related in Cape York. The careers market is an exciting place in our area right now.

Our Trade Fair is building on the success of previous Careers Expos in Cooktown, with these popular events growing each year. There are more and more opportunities for young people to stay and earn good money and enjoy a fulfilling career on the Cape, with the expansion of agriculture and solar at Lakeland, roadworks on the Peninsula Development Road and opportunities in the Rio Tinto Amrun project.

There is strong support from the Australian Defence Force and our local My Pathway group for this event, which also aligns with the Developing Northern Australia White Paper. Come along and show your support, see what opportunities are available in Cape York, hear from industry leaders, or book a trade stall.
